I know human encroachment plays out every minute around the world. And such events are all too common. But just this film of heavy traffic, buildings, pavement, chain link fences and then a beautiful, nice-sized wild gator. And to go through being wrestled, tied and duct taped. We had eaten that day at a restaurant a stone's throw away.
So, I am every bit a part of the problem. Being new to the area, I'm not used to seeing these, though I know they are all around and I just have to look.
The newscaster's joke was funny, but not the situation for the alligator. It just struck me a little more personally as I know the populated busy area. I wonder how the wildlife process all this.
